5.9 does not boot, 5.8 and 5.7 freeze in emergency mode

Did an update yesterday, now the system wont boot:

  • 5.9: starts to boot, but stays in text mode. Ctrl + Alt + Del does trigger a normal reboot.
  • 5.8 & 5.7: enter emergency mode and freeze. Neither react to Ctrl +D nor Ctrl + Alt + Del. NumLock is also dead.

Did boot into the parallel 18.04 installation and did a check on the Manjaro drive, same result.

cries for help

Hi @silvan :wink:

Could be the same issue like here, if you use nvidia:

Kernel 5.9 seems not to support 440xx driver and now there is a conflict. Install 450xx or 455xx :wink:

Thanks for the quick answer @megavolt
I do indeed have nvidia 440 installed, wish me luck :smiley:

I did have to remove cuda and linux-latest-nvidia-440x first:

sudo pacman -R linux-latest-nvidia-440xx cuda
sudo mhwd -r pci video-nvidia-440xx
sudo mhwd -i pci video-nvidia-455xx

Then it even started the session without a reboot :grinning:
